The problem is very simple. We have to accept the present, the present moment. It is very simple. At this present moment you are sitting here in front of Me for a puja. Every present moment is to be enjoyed, not to get worried about the future, not to be upset about the past. The compassion of God is tremendous. It is tremendous. Allow Him to work it out. When you try to play your role, then the compassion acts on the stones and give all these ripples and the sounds and all this jumbling. So the best way to allow your mind to be all right is to be peaceful, alert – alert, not sleepy. Only when you sleep, then you do not have the stones there. So then you are alert, watching and enjoying every moment. The time is beautiful and I think it is better that you be in thoughtless awareness and enjoy.
